The package implements an integrated editing and imputation for continuous microdata under linear constraints. It relies on a Bayesian nonparametric hierarchical modeling approach in which the joint distribution of the data is estimated by a flexible joint probability model. The generated edit-imputed data are guaranteed to satisfy all imposed edit rules, whose types include ratio edits, balance edits and range restrictions.
